Week in Review 11-26-2019
Thanksgiving is a time to spend with family and friends and an opportunity to reflect. This year has been an incredibly tumultuous time in our country and Congress. Nevertheless, JACPAC candidates are working in Congress to help pass meaningful legislation to improve the lives of everyone in this country. This week we want to highlight some of our candidates and their achievements. Throughout the year we will continue to keep you updated on their work and the work of our other candidates.
